Rocky Mountains

Pile of large rocks and plate-tectonic upthrusts that take up most of the land area in British Columbia. Beloved of Japanese tourists and forestry multinationals. Japanese use them for sentimental nature hikes and safe photographic subjects, while the multinationals find that their variable landscapes and inaccessibility make it easier to hide the fact that forestry over-harvesting is denuding their slopes of trees. The presence of these mountains occasionally give Albertans living in the vicinity cause to doubt their cherished belief that the world is flat.
